    Management of anaesthetists' workload (physical effort, mental effort, and psychological stress) during anaesthesia is important for patient safety. The Borg workload scale has been used to quantify anaesthetist's workload. This scale can be used by anaesthetists for self-reporting, or by...

    The article discusses several deaths among young anaesthetists in China that are related to heavy workload. It examines the stress experienced by the anaesthetists including heavy workloads for a long time and regular exposure to smoke caused by X-rays, waste anaesthetic gases and diathermy. It...

    Background Cognitive overload has been recognized as a significant cause of error in industries such as aviation and measuring mental workload has become a key method of improving safety. The aim of this study was to pilot the use of a new method of measuring mental workload in the operating...

    More and more anaesthetists are getting involved in interventional radiology procedures and so it is important to know the radiation dose and to optimise protection for anaesthetists. In this study, based on Monte Carlo simulations and field measurements, both the whole-body doses and eye lens...

    Development of accurate Situation Awareness (SA) depends on experience and may be impaired during excessive workload. In order to gain adequate SA for decision making and performance, anaesthetists need to distribute visual attention effectively. Therefore, we hypothesized that in more...
